I just took the GMAT today, and am wondering if I should go for Wharton/Harvard, which I didn't previously think was possible. Let me know your thoughts!

GMAT- 730
GMAT QUANT- 48 (69th percentile)
GMAT VERBAL- 42 (96th percentile)
GMAT INT. REASONING- 8

U. GPA- 3.42
U. MAJOR- Economics
Teach For America alum - Winner of prestigious award from TFA for impact in the classroom

I know I'm below the 75th percentile range for Quant, but wondering how much that will matter? Will the 8 in Integrated Reasoning help at all? I don't have a ton of money to spend on apps, so wondering if I have a serious chance at Harvard/Wharton - otherwise I will stick with my original plan of Tuck/Cornell.

I'm also wondering if it will hurt my application that my one previous score (a 690 - from 2015) will be included on my score report? Though I guess there isn't much I can do about it. It's impossible to cancel tests after the 72 hour window, right? I suppose 2 years is too long?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

First congrats on a great score! Don't worry about old scores- it shows that you stuck with it- and in terms of quant score- don't worry about it. Your econ major should help show quant prowess- and if need be-

an accounting class for a grade. I think if you spend time on the applications- HBS is a possibility- and worth it. You could always do HBS/Cornell if you want to keep more a safety in there. For tips on HBS, here is a great link:
